Director of DFT Engineering

Location:  San Jose, CA

To apply for this position go to:


  • Lead and manage a team of DFT engineers responsible for scan, MBIST, LBIST and boundary scan
  • Responsible for chip DFT strategy, architecture and planning
  • Drive DFT flows and methodology development and enhancements
  • Collaborate with design, verification, synthesis, PD teams and other cross functional teams for DFT development and debug activities
  • Resource and Schedule planning
  • Design DFT logic including inserting MEMBIST, boundary scan, scan, and at speed ATPG (Transition Delay Fault Testing).
  • Run RTL simulations and gate simulations with SDF to confirm correct functionality of DFT logic.
  • Generate ATPG vectors, bring-up and debug patterns, resolve test pattern and coverage issues, support test engineering and operations through qualification, burn-in, and production
  • Support failure analysis and fault isolation of pattern failures


  • Experience leading and mentoring multi-site DFT teams
  • Must have experience inserting, testing, and using DFT logic functions (JTAG, LBIST, MBIST, scan, boundary scan, ATPG) on multiple chips that have been through tape-out and product ramp.
  • Must have experience with logic design, especially involving multiple clock domains.
  • Experience with automotive flows and qualification highly desirable
  • Experience with Perl or other similar scripting languages.
  • Experience with silicon lab bring-up.
  • Experience operating a tester to debug patterns is a plus.
  • Experience with physical design tools, synthesis tools and static timing analysis tools such as PrimeTime is a plus.
  • Clear written and verbal communication skills

Education and Experience:

  • MS preferred or BS in Electrical Engineering (MSEE), Computer Science (MSCS), or Equivalent.
  • Minimum 10 years applicable experience
